evolution message filter "Subject starts with" fails
Last modified: 2007-12-17 08:09:41 EST
Description of problem:
Message filtes containing a clause "Subject start with" don't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a message filter with a clause "Subject start with xxx" and an
2. Send yourself a test message with suject "xxxblehbleh".
3. Check if the filter worked as expected.
The message doesn't get filtered so the action doesn't execute.
The message has to be filtered. This is, the filter's action has to be executed
on the incoming message.
It worked fine with these package version on a Fedora Core 5 (I'm not sure where
the message filter functionality belongs to so I post these three packages):
It started to fail with the very next versions of these packages.
I'm able to correct/reproduce the problem just downgrading/upgrading these
packages. The filters.xml file is preserved between upgrades/downgrades.
I am also hitting this in rhel5 - have been for a long time. (since beta1?)
Seems to be still present in GOLD bits (just yum updated last night)
My exact problem (filter starting with "[Bug") found and confirmed workaround is
"It seems to be a leading space issue, using a space before the text supposed to
start the title makes the filter works on my dapper installation"
My version info:
$ rpm -qa | grep evolution
2.6.18-8.el5xen #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:29:35 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Dell Precision 490
I also run evolution on my personal laptop (not running rhel5) and the same
filter works fine without the space. Version info for that is:
184.108.40.206-0.25-default #1 Tue Sep 19 07:26:15 UTC 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Cloning for RHEL5. See bug #230621.
Thanks for the tip. I confirm that in FC6 the leading space trick seems to solve

Is this problem still present in Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
Sorry, I have no idea. I can confirm it up to Fedora 7.
Thanks for responding. I think this was fixed recently but I'll double-check.
evolution-data-server in Fedora 7 doesn't contain fix from upstream bug , but
evolution-data-server in Fedora 8 does contain that fix, and I believe it fixes
your issue. If possible, can you check, please?
Sorry for the delay. I just updated the box to Fedora 8 and can confirm that
problem is solved :)
These are the packages installed:
Thanks for your help.
Great, thanks for checking. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
